Children may stay for lunch either bringing a packed lunch or having a school dinner, or they may go home for lunch. Children staying at school are supervised by our Teaching Assistants.
A varied menu is offered with a choice of main course and dessert. The cost is payable on the first school day of the week. Please send in the correct money in a sealed, named envelope. Over payments will be carried forward to the next week. You may pay monthly or termly if this is more convenient. It is the Catering Service policy only to provide meals if payment has been made. Please notify the school office of any food that your child is unable to eat because of medical or religious reasons. If your child wishes to change their lunch choice you must give a term's notice.

Free School Meals
Universal Free School Meals
From September 2014 every pupil in Reception, Year 1 and 2 is eligible for free school meals. We do hope children will take up this opportunity to have a free healthy meal.
Good food has been shown to lead to healthier, happier children, as well as helping them to perform better academically. Schools have also reported improved behaviour and atmosphere as a result of all pupils eating together every day.
PLEASE REGISTER FOR FREE SCHOOL MEALS EVEN IF YOU DO NOT INTEND TO TAKE IT UP!
We ask that all eligible parents / carers complete school meals registration form so that we can continue to gain additional funding known as Pupil Premium, which is worth £1,300 a year per pupil for our school. This money is used to support a range of interventions which help children who are vulnerable to underachievement.
Applications for free school meals are made using the relevant forms which can be obtained from the school office. The forms should be sent to the Area Education Office directly. Parents / carers and the school will then be informed if free school meals will be provided.
More information on how we spend this money can be found on the Pupil Premium page of our school website.
Please provide a secure, named packed lunch box for your child. As a school that promotes healthy eating we ask that you provide a healthy, well-balanced meal and a still drink in a plastic bottle. Please do not include more than one small chocolate bar. Sweets are not part of a healthy lunch.
